“An old widetrack trail that takes you past Plot M.”— Jason O'Young
Taking Trail to Plot M will bring you to a granite monument describing what is buried there. Continuing west on Stair Steps will be a climb up wide overgrown doubletrack. A series of roots used to form a stair step trail surface, but has since eroded to its current smoother state.
At the crest of the hill will be a short downhill, also populated by plenty of roots. The trail then ends at Old Argonne Road where turning right will take you toward Turf and turning left will take you to the Old Argonne area.
